The hotel is located in via Nazionale, near República square (subway). The staff were pleasant and helpful. Our room, 507, was nice, modern,whith very confortable beds, plasma tv 32", nice bathroon, etc. But small for a five stars.
The breakfast isn`t the best.
Loved the design
Great location, clean and nice staff! The price is very high, but this is a real 4* hotel, with service of 4* hotel. Breakfast was good.
Very stylish, well located
We spent two nights in the La Griffe and it seems, that it has been renovated only shortly before - very stylish and modern inside: Black marble lobby and dark grey corridors is surely intended to look noble, we found it simply a bit dark. The room we stayed in was luckily more friendly coloured, also quite stylish but comfortable.
The service has been excellent and friendly. Big advantage in my opinion: It's easy to get there (5minutes walk from Termini station) and easy to get anywhere in historic Rome if you're fit to walk a few kilometers.
Points off: Via Nazionale is noisy, but rooms have well-isolated windows. Only it has been start of the heating period and we were not able to adjust the temperature in a way that would suite Middle European likings. So we had to sleep with open windows - loud again...
Additonally there's a church in the neighborhood (high probability of that in Rome!). But it's Anglican (low probability in Rome!) and rings the bells only once or twice a day during the week and only more often on Sunday
I stayed at this hotel for three nights and loved it. The staff was helpful and courteous and went out of their way to help us. The room was clean and the beds were cozy. Couldn't ask for more! I'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.
Stayed at the La Griffe for one night on returning to Rome from a week travelling. On a Saturday night (the famous notte bianco - white night), found the staff to be excellent and very attentive, allowing us to check in two hours before standard time. The room overlooking the via Nazionale, was very quiet, beautiful, very contemporary, luxuriously decorated and spacious. The bathroom whilst smaller than the hotel we had stayed in the week previous whilst in Rome, was great with a top class spec and design. Having visited Rome on many occasions and being familiar with the vagaries in hotel class and standards, I am recommending this hotel to anyone who will listen. I found the staff to be extra attentive and genuinely welcoming, booking a great retaurant and club for us with instant understanding and effeciency, the views from the roof top terrace were great also.
Star Trek in Style and the Service is just as Cold!
We got bumped from our oversold 3 Star Hotel, Hotel Europa, to this "brand new 5 Star Luxury Hotel." What a joke! First of all, everyone that works there has major attitude, you can tell there has been zero training as to how to make guests feel welcome and respected. After a cold greeting we were escorted to our rooms with no windows!! Who wants to travel to ROME and stay in 5 Star hotel, with now windows! I take that back, there was a fire escape window facing inward with a view of exposed pipes, air ducts and escape stairs. The design is very high-tech, lots of metal and dark colors, like the Standard Hotel- not reminscent of Rome in any sense. OH, then there's the restaurants! Of course the casual restaurant where you eat breakfast is in the basement with you guessed it, no windows. The roof-top restaurant however does have potential, the view is nice and the food and service acceptable. Oh yes, one day the elevator dropped a floor with my parents in it, they had to climb out of the elevator on a ladder. All the staff did was offer my mother a glass of water and blame the elevater company. Lastly, we checked our bags w/ the bell desk while we toured around for a few hours on our last day. When we returned we were shocked to find our bags sitting in a hallway between a stairwell and a service entrance, totally unattended and out of sight of the front desk! We couldn't get out of that hotel fast enough! We now affectionally refer to it as the "Nothing But Grief Hotel."
Excellent value - very American and student friendly
Spent 9 days here with a group of American high schools students in June, 2001 - nice, clean rooms, some of which were HUGE; accommodating staff that helped me keep an eye on my young charges!
Liberty Hotel, Rome
Had a great five days in Rome. Plenty to see and do. However, the Liberty Hotel in Via Nazionale was the most awful 3 star hotel I have every stayed in. Certainly not worth the money.

... that it has the appearance of melted and dried wax. You can still see how it was used, but we have learned that contrary to Hollywood folklore, the battles that took place here rarely ended in death.
We are hungry by now, so we cycle further along the river to the historic centre to lock up the bikes near to our next sightseeing area. We try a street our book has recommended for cheap pizza for lunch, but when we choose a pie, we are informed one pie is €12 so ...

... our Roman tour, we were taken to a beautiful little piazza full of sculptures which the guide said most people didn't know existed. Rome is very easy to get around even without using public transport. There are a few hills but they're not that high.
We've been to the Pantheon and Piazza Navona a few times and they would be my favorite spots. I love the Pantheon but the lack of respect by some tourists ****** me off. Every few minutes ...
If the pope ever decided to upgrade his digs and relocate he would have the capacity to have what we would call the worlds greatest garage sale.

Within the first hour we knew we were going to have to skip a few things as it took us an hour just to ...
... The culture here is quite different than what we're used to. People cut in lines and the traffic and driving is crazy. There are cars and motorcycles parked everywhere, including the sidewalks. Rome is also much bigger than I originally expected it to be. There are a lot of places to go and see, many of which are rich with ...
